    Also, I've read right wing "reports" that say Obama HATES being President and is actually (I found this laughable) INTENTIONALLY TRYING TO GET IMPEACHED.

    Yowza. That's a major tectonic shift in a strong (albeit small) GOP voting bloc.

    I'm fully aware of the secret service detail for past Presidents - I was simply noting that Obama is likely to cost the country significant dollars over the years in that regard if he lives a normal life expectancy unless he refuses it, which I find unlikely.

    Obama doesn't hate being President he just hates all the nuisance stuff like actually leading the country, working with Congress, etc. The man loves the attention and the perks and you'll have to drag him out in January 2017. And just like Carter, he's going to be an in-your-face know it all ex-President - he hasn't the grace nor self-control to simply retire as GWB and his father have done.

    The only reason for that is because Obama got elected, by U.S. President standards, fairly young. I don't see why this is even a discussion.

    Strong indeed, and made even worse when you consider that they already lost one minority voting bloc they used to have (Asians), so they really can't afford to lose another.

    The fact that the Cuban vote is essentially up for grabs right now is very bad news for the GOP.

    Especially in Florida, the swingiest (?) of the swing states.

    How bad the right wingers have acted? Shall we count the ways? Utterly intractable intrasigence in Congress, pushing voting laws that do nothing to address voter fraud but target largely minority voting blocs, the Arizona "show your papers" law, "legitimate rape," etc., etc.

    It's a real mystery why the GOP can't get blacks to vote for them, and are rapidly losing the Latino and female electorate.
    Its funny that you continue to bang the "voter ID laws are racist" rhetoric. I mean..I DO get it. Its all you have. You have to stir up racial animus in order to HOPE to have a chance. You havent bothered to and damn sure cant run or record and results.

    Gore lost. Kerry lost Both lost very winnable elections. Obama won and his main draw is his race...certainly not his academic record, his job experience, his senatorial experience, etc. He was elected because as Joe Biden put it the dems FINALLY found a "clean articulate well spoken black man". Hillary pandered to the black voters in 2008 and it didnt help. There hasnt been progress in the black community since Obama took over. It has in fact gotten worse.

    Now...do I think they will vote GOP? No...I just dont think near as many will be inspired to vote at all for her.

    Its NO mystery why people like you continue to pander to blacks, Hispanics, and women and treat them like lowest common denominator voting bloc.Its not wonder you continue to employ scare tactics and gender and race baiting.

    Maybe the GOP should abandon law and order, ignore the impact on future generations, and embrace the democrat policies of promising reckless and uncontrolled spending. I suppose if both sides merely pandered to every special interest and rights group we could have some serious fun watching them compete for popularity and Miss Congeniality votes. Granted...the country would be done for inside a decade, but hey...double the debt, promise the moon. Whats the worst that could happen? And how many years down the road can we dump the consequences of 'the worst' on?

    What don't you get, history has already weighed in on Obama, have you not seen his approval rating lately? The guy is a disgrace to this country.

    Obama's approval rating is still higher than Bush's when he left office. Has history weighed in on Bush? Do you know what history means?
